Fans are in for a treat as "Deadpool" is said to get a Christmas day trailer.

The film, about Marvel Comic's anti-hero, is not due in theaters until February 12, 2016 which means there will be more in the news about it until the day arrives.

With that in mind, Comic Book Movie (CBM) got word that the "Merc with a Mouth," portrayed by Ryan Reynolds in both "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and the R-rated solo movie, would make an appearance during an NBA game on December 25 in ESPN.

News about this came from an Instagram post from Rob Liefield, the creator of "Deadpool."

"Did you see it? #DEADPOOL promo for the NBA on ABC! As if you needed more proof he's a Liefeld creation!! Deadpool and Kobe and HOOPS!!! Rejoice!! #robliefeld #robliefeldcreations," says the post accompanied with an image of the suited anti-hero wearing a Santa Claus hat.

CBM further revealed that the clip, which will also be released online shortly after its big reveal, sems to be set for airing in the NBA basketball court during the Lakers vs. Clippers game, scheduled at 10:30 PM PST.

Screen Rant noted that this particular choice of NBA game may be due to the "relatively high visibility" of the game since it will be the last one to feature Kobe Bryant's basketball moves before his recently announced retirement reported in the New York Times.

A previous report from CBM also revealed that there will be two more trailers for "Deadpool" since Alberta Film Ratings screened and classified three.

These two, says the outlet, will most likely comprise a theatrical trailer and a Red Band trailer.

Screen Rant further noted how the anticipation of the R-rated film continues to skyrocket surrounding the hype produced by several social media teases, which may be part of the marketing team's strategies to get their limited audience's attention.

Reynolds himself seems to be in for the teasing as he continues using Twitter as his means of "sharing" his thoughts about the upcoming film.

Back in March, he shared this flavorful image:

Aside from the 39-year-old Canadian actor, the film's cast also includes Morena Baccarin as Vanessa Carlysle a.k.a. Copycat, Ed Skrein as Francis a.k.a. Ajax, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, T.J. Miller as Jack Hammer a.k.a. Weasel, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Andre Tricoteux as Piotr Rasputin a.k.a. Colossus, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, and Jed Rees as The Recruiter.
